Conquer Your Self Limiting Bias This Way

Biases can be helpful, but they can also be self limiting. I discovered this the other day when I was working on my business. I have been writing content for my business site to drive traffic to the site. The problem was, for all my cleverness and sincerity, my writing just wasn’t working. Site traffic to my business was flat.

There’s another fellow who I must confess I had a rather low opinion of who has been working on the same project. I have no direct way to watch his progress, in terms of traffic results. I had watched his efforts sporadically over the past two years. His content looked bland, boring and trivial. That was part of my bias.

It took me a long time to become aware of my bias. Over the past two years, I have started to recognize some of my biases, and the other day, I discovered this one. Another colleague suggested I take a look at and tray to emulate the content writing of the fellow in question. That was when I began to recognize my bias. And once I realized it, I decided to get rid of it.

I spent several sweeping breath sessions working on all my interactions with him over the years, and all my feelings and biases towards him. It did not take long before I had refreshed my opinion of him and his work. With the help of another colleague, I was able to look at his work with fresh unbiased eyes. What an impressive difference it made!

I have already begun to understand how, why and the value of his style of writing. I will be adding this to my arsenal of business techniques. I am so glad that I have discovered the sweeping breath technique for getting rid of these kinds of feelings.
